A challenge for fiddly fingers.
Please watch the video and see how it works! Needed are only 5 Q-tips for each star. And no tools but your fingers. So start trying!

Step 1: Bending

Prepare all q tips by bending the to left and right , in a zig-zag way
<strong>nice and simple love it</strong>
We used to make &quot;throwing stars&quot; out of popsicle sticks like this when I was a kid. They would hit something then blow apart.
Very clever, and a fun way to use up Q-tips! thanks for posting. <br>
Wow no way you glued q tips together
This is great! I bet kids could learn some great dexterity skills doing this project and make some fun ornaments! Does it matter if you use paper or plastic q-tips?
I didn't even realize there are paper ones. Don't know how that works. Mine are plastic.
By paper, I mean like sucker sticks, and thanks for the clarification! I thought the plastic kind would be necessary but couldn't be sure. :)
you really need the thicker parts at the end. Drinking straws and such won't lock. They keep slipping away. Very annoying.
